GRADUAL is the second collection by poet and critic Andrew McCulloch. At its heart are translations of six Holy Sonnets, based on verses from the psalms and attributed to Jean Racine. Other, original poems in the collection celebrate another gathering holiness - that of the heart's affection.

'These beautiful translations of the 'Holy Sonnets, awe-filled and rapturous, command an easy, natural flow which finds its own counterpart in McCulloch's own poems: both voices are demotic, musical and full of wonder.' Rachel Nadar.

PUBLISHED ON NOVEMBER 17th and available now, post free.

The Death of Wisdom Smith, Prince of Gypsies

is a new pamphlet by David Morley that will be launched in London in September.

A compelling sequence of poems narrates the death and funeral of Wisdom Smith, Prince of Gypsies (and friend of the poet, John Clare). A fusion of English and Romani brings to wonderful life the events, the feasting and mourning, of April 1839, when gypsies from all over the country converged on Rutland for the funeral of their Prince. 

'He holds our world up to a language mostly kept secret; the refraction of the familiar is dizzying and often moving.' Les Murray

Earlier this year, David Morley won both the prestigious Ted Hughes Award for New Poetry and a Cholmondley Award for Poetry.

The new pamphlet can be ordered now, post free, by selecting it on the buy menu opposite.
